Start Window Cleaning Business

How do I start a window cleaning business is a question we are often asked.

There are many advantages of starting a window cleaning business:

  • Recession Proof
There are countless households and businesses in this country who need their windows cleaned on a regular basis.  The last thing an average householder wants to do is give up precious free time to risk their lives cleaning upstairs windows.  Similarly businesses want to portray the right image by keeping their window squeaky clean.  This makes the window cleaning sector extremely resilient to economic down turns.

  • Unlimited Income Potential
With the right desire and application it is possible to start a window cleaning business very quickly – by moving from a one man band to running a team of operatives.  Of course you may wish to go at a slower rate but the profit margins are still extremely healthy.  Contrast that with holding down a job, with all the uncertainties of being made redundant.

  • Fast To Set Up
Using the right methods it’s very possible to be receiving customer inquiries within days, quoting for work within a week and actually undertaking jobs by week 2.  Within months you could be managing your own team of window cleaners and that’s when the profits really start to ramp up.

  • Easy To Learn
Window cleaning is simple work, it’s not rocket science.  Anybody can start a cleaning business – there is no steep learning curve.  Anyone can learn to clean windows and become a successful business owner.

  • Start On A Modest Budget
You can start a window cleaning business with a modest start up budget and grow it from there. Your main expenditure will be on a ladder, a van and tools of the trade.  Obviously as you get more sophisticated you may eventually move to a water fed pole system.

  • Be Your Own Boss
Nothing quite compares to the freedom, pride and excitement of running your own business.  It’s truly liberating to awake each morning knowing that you set the agenda to create a new destiny for yourself and family.

  • Set Your Own Hours
You choose when you work and when you want to take time off.  When you work smarter instead of harder, you’ll be amazed how much free time you can create.  You set your own schedule to match the work / life balance you want.

  • Repeat Business
Once you've got your window cleaning round established you'll retain customers for months and years ahead.  Your business will become a valuable asset should you wish to sell it at a future date.

To be successful you'll need to learn how to
  •     find customers

  •     recruit employees
  •     comply with health and safety issues
  •     employ efficient window cleaning techniques
